Before we get started. Reality sets in. Snow here in the mountains of beautiful New York State and my own herd of homebreds and home trained horses to care for ( including my Grand Prix Andalusian/DWBx featured above, stable name 'Tigger", because of his ever so bouncy springy legs), but must out and at it.

"There's something about the outside of a horse, that is great for the inside of a (wo)man - " a paraphrase, thanks Winston Churchill - I don't think he'd mind.
Winston has always been a hero of mine. Last October I visited his home, in fact the room where he was born, at Blenheim Palace in the Oxfordshire countryside. I was so moved I actually shed a tear as I stood at the foot of his bed. He wrote novels, was an artist of repute, rode horses and was a horse breeder and oh yes, he led a country through one of the most tumultuous times in history. Well - the first four I've emulated in my way. Pretty happy not to have endured the latter. Have you seen the much acclaimed Steven Spielberg movie War Horse? Well Winston made a priority of retrieving horses from Europe after WWII, will post news on that later. Horses beckon.
